August 1st - The Vetīs Birthday

Port of Call Corfu, 60 km via ferry from Bari, Italia ... We are taking a ferry trip for 3 days 2 nights, to the Ionian Island of Corfu.

The confluence of cultures in Corfu, is a direct result of the ancient occupations and warriors, The Venetians, The French, The Normans and later the British. These foreign legacies can be found throughout Corfu, especially in its architecture and cuisine.

The gastronomy is profoundly influenced by the Italians, spicy tomato sauces, braised roasts and lots of shellfish and fish.

So, we shall be on vacation for 3 days and 2 nights, and then back to the Kitchen & Dining room reforming ...

Have lovely summer,
Ciao, Margi.

Just got home from the festival, it's hot out there. Had a lovely lunch of beef pasties with gravy...Soul Food! The Dancers were great and so was the music. Shrek got pics, so as soon as he uploads them to his computer he will send them to me. One of the dancers couldn't have been more than 6 years old...so cute and so good.

Yes, he had a group of people sitting and standing around him. I told him after he should have turned his hat upside down in front of him. No singing, but he played lots of traditional tunes on the uke and the mandolin.

The festival sounds like lots of fun, fiona! Looking forward to the pics. Kylie, glad you were able to get a nice walk, and that the weather was nice.

I'm just relaxing now out on the patio, with a glass of wine and a purry kitty in my lap. Had a busy day cleaning, still working on the den. Measured all the windows in the house today for new blinds, hoping to get them ordered this coming week.
